As a pioneering and hugely influential songwriter and singer, along with Grammy and Brit nominations Joan has received an Ivor Novello award for her outstanding collection of contemporary songs. In 2007 Joan became the first UK female artist to debut at number 1 in the Billboard Blues chart with her CD Into The Blues. Joan Armatrading has earned herself a reputation as one of Britain's most unusual and gifted talents whose live performances are not to be missed.
Joan Armatrading tour dates
Chris Wood's style of English folk appeals to a wide and varied audience. He has converted many an anti-folk fan with his blend of traditional and modern songwriting, and has been hailed by the Irish Times as 'the renaissance man of English folk'.
Often compared to Richard Thompson, his music explores the history of the English-speaking world alongside tales of modern life.
Joan Armatrading was so taken with Chris's writing, she invited him as special guest on her 50 date tour.
'Wood is an intimate storyteller, applying such nuance and gravitas to every phrase you are imperceptibly lured into his world' (Mojo Magazine)
'The finest and most original singer-songwriter to have emerged from the British folk scene since Richard Thompson' (The Guardian)
'Folk singer of the year' and 'best original song' at BBC Radio 2's Folk Singer Awards 2011.
